@Yorumi
Slippery slope, my friend. The eShop is dwarfed by Apple's App Store and Google Play market in size, mostly because everybody has some smartdevice of sorts and everybody wants it's 15 minutes of fame in there. The eShop? They have to share space with Nintendo's big hitters, and some renowned indie devs (like Renegade Kid). It would take more than 5 sub-par devs to fill the eShop with crap.

As Ryno said, the reason why there wasn't a crash in those markets yet is because most crappy games cost next to nothing. Most people won't mind a wasted buck over a bad game.

@Yorumi
"Well part of the problem is so many people are buying it just because it's crap. That's just plain sad, and essentially those people are trying to ruining the wiiU for the rest of us. Essentially people are trying to sound a warning saying "you guys are going down a path that will destroy the wiiU, stop it.""

Hate to say it, but if lots of people out of NL are buying it, that's something that's outside of our control as NL denizens and individuals.

You know, if you get livid by the mere existence of a 1 buck Flappy Bird clone in the eShop, you should get your priorities checked.

Just vote with your wallets folks, yelling and throwing tantrums on the internet won't do jack crap.

"Also, stop with the whole "we have taste" nonsense. Ok, you don't want gimped ports on the Wii U and you like Zelda and Mario games. How does that make you have better tastes than a Playstation or Xbox owner?"

As somebody stated above, there's no parity between PSXB and Wii U when it comes to 3rd party games. Wii U versions of AAA games usually have features cut and priced at a similar price as their PS/XB bretherns (in the best case; remember the Deus Ex fiasco?)

@JaxonH: it's not just the sloppy ports; it's the lack of DLC and the BS delays, sum it the powder keg of Nintendo fanbase and you get a freaking disaster.

Basically the Nintendo fanbase does not like to be treated like second class gamers; they don't forget so easily.

@Caryslan Problem is that then it comes the "declining handheld device" argument and then you might say later "drop that, go 3rd party". You're just advocating a short-term solution that will put Nintendo further in the corner in the long run.

I won't deny Nintendo botched the Wii U start badly, but if they can get their stuff together with the "unified architechture/OS" thing (which is great, since that means dramatically streamlined game developement), they have a chance of bouncing back next gen.

AJ_Lethal commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

@Yorumi I kinda agree with that, but remember that Nintendo is going through a generational change as we're speaking. Obviously the "new guys" will stick with the "old guard" ways for a while they find their own way.

As for Miyamoto - he has a quite poignant point: gaming is barely reaching puberty, it still has to fight for being recgonized as a legitimate medium.

@Kirk Which are you talking about? JSF only got a sequel and recently a HD remake (because cult status) and Earthbound bombed at release, but it took 20 YEARS to resurface in the VC (because cult status).

Thing is: you can't say "X will/won't catch on" as a certainity, because you're (and me) are f-n human beings and we can be wrong. If you don't believe me read this list of examples: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItWillNeverCatchOn
